Winter Scene at Sunset (Posterized Photo)

Winter Scene at Sunset (Posterized Photo) Originally uploaded by randubnick

This is the third in a set of four photos of the winter sunset. These images began as photos that I took on January 15 with my recently acquired digital camera. The vantage point is the passenger seat of a moving car, on the way to New Hampshire, and the subject was the amazing sky! I cropped this image out of one of the photos taken on Route 128, and was able to eliminate a few billboards and road signs that would have identified it as deepest suburbia (which it is!). Then I opened the image in Painter IX, and posterized it, and what remains is a quiet scene: snow and houses with lights just coming on as the winter sun goes down.
